    Why is the name ZANVIL absent on Rav (Avrohom) Pams’ z’ll matzeivah?

    Apparently he stopped using it (to a certain extent) after arriving in the US

    There are several exchanges of letters between Rav Meir Pam and Rav Mordechai Aryeh Haberman starting at p.12 over here:

  • 11 Rabbi Stern // Sep 9, 2013 at 11:20 am

    Rabbi Meir Pam learned in Knesses Bais Yitzchak, in Kovno, then with Rabbi Laizer Gordon, and finally in the Chofetz Chaim’s Kollel Kodashim, where two of his colleagues were Rabbi Elchonon Wasserman and Rabbi Yosef Kahaneman, the future Ponevizher Rav. Rabbi Kahaneman later was the Rav of Vidz for a time, and invited Reb Meir to say the shiur in the yeshiva there.
